Although I've had an interest in all things handmade since I was a young girl, Buttonpom did not come to bud until the summer of 2005. It was then that I realized that the handbags I was creating could be a constructive alternative to mass-produced and all too often socially irresponsible and environmentally unfriendly accessories. Perhaps it was guilt, but I wanted to stray away from mindless consumption and support a system that directly links the consumer with the maker. A sort of consumerism that is more communal. I feel that everything we do, consciously or not, is deeply political. From what we purchase, to the stores we shop at, it is all a political statement. Not only can we make and buy lovely things, but we can also feel good doing it, however little it may be.

Every Buttonpom handbag and accessory is made by busy hands that enjoy to sew, sew, sew. Buttonpom items are made from a variety of fabrics: some reproduction, some organic, some vintage, some imported from Japan. I love color, especially new and exciting color combination, and my work is often inspired by the fabrics that I find. I am a firm believer in not only good design but also well-crafted design.
